The social networks are set to the number of users to join them. And without users, a social network is neither social nor anything. Now transcend the data from two of the most popular social networks and used the moment: Instagram and Twitter . And the results are most striking , showing the meteoric rise of social network photo retouching , which in a few months has managed to meet and exceed the 140 characters .
Keep in mind that the data come from the company ComScore , responsible for measuring the hearing of these social networks in the United States . However, it is a good sign to get an idea of the pace of growth and expansion they are achieving. Thus we find that using Instagram has risen sevenfold in just six months.

And not only measures how many users subscribe to these social networks, but also the time spent on them . Point again be Instagram . Although Twitter has become a tool for almost basic media and that is chosen by users for their immediacy , it seems that in the United States prefer to spend more timeconsulting, publishing and retouching photographs . Specifically, users of Instagram invested during the month of August, 257 minutes in this social network, while those of Twitter remained only 170 minutes .
The third wheel is Facebook , which remains the majority social network . Although not offer this data, are notorious attempts to Mark Zuckerberg to open a gap in the market for applications for smartphones and tablets . This has not only tried to set a window to provide portable access to its more than 900 billion users , but it has deployed a range of applications that includes some of the basic functions of Facebook . So we can access the section of messaging with Messenger or upload photos with Camera .
It seems that the time of the social networks , and have not yet peaked. According to the graph of Comscore remains the number of users grow , although tastes, for now, continue to support the retouching . We’ll see in a few months if the trend continues or if it is a fad . Meanwhile keep you informed of what is happening to these massive and popular social networks .
